Via their PR agency, Manhunt lets us know that they’ve purchased DList.
Jonathan Crutchley, Chairman at Online Buddies Inc., the parent company of Manhunt, announced today that the company has acquired a majority stake in the leading social networking site for gay men under age 30, DList.com. As part of the deal, Online Buddies will take over all marketing efforts for Dlist.com. Online Buddies CEO, Adam Segel, and CFO, Richard Scott, will be appointed to DList.com in their respective roles. DList.com founder Todd Sowers, recently named Chief Marketing Officer at Online Buddies, retains a minority partnership in DList.com and will be appointed Chief Operations Officer of DList.com where he will continue to oversee the daily operations of the site.
Remember last year when Crutchley made a big deal out of “resigning” from Manhunt’s board of directors after it was revealed that he’d contributed to John McCain’s election fund? As we all said at the time, that was meaningless damage control. He’s still the same conservative Republican calling the shots at the nation’s largest gay internet hook-up service.
